An exciting weekend of events will take place this summer as part of the Fulltone Festival.

The festival, previously held in the Market Place in Devizes, launched as a result of the Fulltone Orchestra, a 50 strong orchestra of some of the top musicians in the South West.

Musical director Anthony Brown said: "We had such a successful event in the Marketplace in Devizes in 2019 that we just had to repeat it. "Unfortunately 2020 just couldn’t happen and we’ve been waiting with baited breath to be able to launch the event for this year.

"With the roadmap announced by the Prime Minister we were finally able to put our plans into action."

In 2019, thanks to support from both Wiltshire Council and Devizes Town Council, the event was free to attend. The same level of financial support is not available for 2021, so tickets will be on sale.


This year's event well be held on the Green, rather than the Market Place.

Anthony said: "The impact of the virus has meant that we needed a larger space to put on the Festival to help keep both performers and our audience safe, therefore, we have moved the event to The Green in Devizes but have kept it as central as we can to the town for easy access.

"This space also allows us to put a much bigger sound system, bigger space and more lights so watch Devizes because this Music Festival is going to be epic."

The festival will cover a great variety of music, including classical greats like Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, with Dominic Irving playing Piano. Iconic Film Themes will feature the likes of Star Trek, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter but also a section of older war movie themes such as The Great Escape, Lawrence of Arabia and 633 Squadron.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

The concert theme for this year focuses on eighties hits, including songs from David Bowie and Kyle, as well as guest singers from The Invitation Theatre Company (TITCO).

The Festival will conclude with the Fulltone Orchestra "rocking the soundwaves" with classics from Pink Floyd, Bryan Adams, Led Zeppelin, U2 and a Tribute to Queen.

A weekend ticket for the festival is £35 with children under 12 going free.
